Chapter 5. System Maintenance
Warning: (1) Do not remove a failed component from the system until you have
a replacement on hand. If you remove a failed component without
replacing it, the internal airflow will be disrupted. (2) Qualified
engineers who are familiar with the system should be the only ones
who make component replacements.(3) When inserting a removable
module, do not use excessive force. Forcing or slamming a module can
damage the connector pins either on the module itself or on the
backplane.
The following components can be replaced:
PSU module (refer to Replacing the PSU)
Slot fan module (refer to Replacing the Slot Fan Module)
Hard drive (refer to Replacing a Hard Drive)
5.1. Replacing the Power Supply Module
(for Rackmount Series)
The power supply modules (PSUs are fully redundant and each PSU module is
housed in a robust steel canister.
Detecting a Failed PSU
If a PSU fails, the system notifies you through the following indicators:
PSUs are located at the rear and there one status LED (1) (refer
to Power Supply Unit (PSU) & LEDs for LED definitions).
1
Front panel LED status indicator (refer to Front Panel)
48
Audible alarm (refer to Audible Alarms)
Replacing the PSU
A failed PSU should be replaced as soon as possible, but only when you have a
replacement module in your hand. Contact technical support for more details
(refer to Customer Support).
Warning: (1) Although systems can operate using a single PSU, it is not advisable
to run the system with a single PSU for an extended period of time. (2)
When a PSU is removed from the chassis, the cooling module is also
removed from the chassis. Hence the airflow provided by the cooling
module is also disabled. With an empty module bay, airflow will also
be disrupted. It is therefore strongly recommended to complete the
replacement procedure in less than five minutes.
To replace a PSU, follow these steps:
1. Disconnect the power cord.
2. Loosen the retention screw (indicated by the blue arrow) that secures
the extraction handle to the chassis.
3. Remove the PSU module (indicated by the blue arrow). Grab the
extraction handle and pull the handle upwards to disconnect the PSU
from the backplane connectors. Once dislodged, gently pull the PSU
out of the system. If the system is mounted in a rackmount rack, use
another hand to support its weight while removing the module.
49
4. Insert the replacement module. Make sure the (1) extraction handle is
held at its highest position so that the saddle notches on the sides of the
handle can snap onto the metal (2) anchor pins placed along the interior
walls of the PSU slot. Push the PSU into (3) chassis, and when you feel
the contact resistance, use slightly more force to engage the back-end
connectors. Push the handle downwards to secure the module.
5. Fasten the retention screw.
6. Reconnect the power cord.
7. Power on the PSU module.
50
5.2. Replacing the Slot Fan Module (for
Rackmount Series)
Warning: Although the cooling modules are fully redundant, it is not advisable
to run the system with only one or two drawer fan module for more
than five minutes.
There are also four slot fan modules located behind the front panel cover.
These cooling modules draw in air and cool the entire system enclosure while
controlling the operating temperature within the chassis and therefore their
working integrity should be maintained at all times.
Detecting a Failed Slot Cooling Fan Module
If a cooling module fails, the system notifies you through the following
indicators:
Front panel LED status indicator (refer to Front Panel Status
LED)
Audible alarm (refer to Audible Alarms)
Replacing the Slot Cooling Fan Module
The failed cooling module should be replaced as soon as possible, but only
when you have a replacement module in your hand. To replace the drawer
fan module:
1. Remove the front panel cover by loosening the two screws on both
ends.
2. Identify the faulty slot fan module by reading the slot fan module
status LED (light up red).
51
3. Hook your index finger around the latch and gently pull the slot fan
module out of the enclosure.
4. Insert the replacement module simply by inserting it into the
enclosure.
52
5.3. Replacing a Hard drive (for Desktop
Series)
The easiest way to find out if your hard disk drive has failed is by looking at the
hard drive status LED. If the power status lights up red, it indicates that that
particular hard disk drive has failed. Hard drives are hot swappable, to replace
it, please refer to the following procedure:
1. Locate the failed hard drive with a red status LED (hard drive status
LED).
2. Unlock the hard drive tray by turning the bezel to the unlock
position.
3. Open the tray bezel by pushing the release button (indicated by the
blue arrow) and the front bezel will automatically open.
53
Release button
4. Remove the drive tray by pulling it one inch away from the drive bay.
Wait for at least 30 seconds for the hard drive to spin-down, and
then gently and carefully remove the drive tray from the chassis.
5. Remove the four retention screws that secure the hard drive from
the sides of the drive tray (two on each side).
6. Install the replacement hard drive as shown below and reinserted
into the enclosure.
Connector end
54
5.4. Replacing a Hard drive (for Rackmount
Series)
Warning: (1) Keep a replacement on hand before replacing the hard drive. Do not
leave the drive tray open for an extended period of time or the internal
airflow will be disrupted. (2) Handle the drives with extreme care. Carry
them only by the edges of their metal covers and avoid touching their
circuits part and interface connectors.
Detecting a Failed Hard Drive
If a hard drive fails, the system notifies you through the following indicators:
Audible alarm (refer to Audible Alarms)
Hard drive tray status LED
Replacing a Hard Drive
1. The hard drives are located behind the front panel (indicated by the blue
circle).
2. Unlock the drive tray bezel (indicated by the blue arrow). Use a flat-blade
screwdriver to set the groove in the horizontal orientation.
3. Open the drive tray. Press the button. The tray bezel will pop out.
55
4. Remove the drive tray. Pull the tray one inch away from the enclosure.
Wait for at least 30 seconds for the disk drive to spin down, and then
gently withdraw the drive tray from the chassis.
5. Remove four retention screws. The screws secure the hard drive to the
drive tray.
6. Replace the drive. Secure the hard drive with the four retention screws as
shown below.
7. Insert the drive tray back to the enclosure. Install the drive tray with the
front bezel open. When fully inserted, close the front bezel.
8. Lock the drive tray. Turn the bezel lock to the vertical orientation (locked
position) using a flat blade screwdriver. Do not push the bezel lock while
turning it, otherwise the spring handle will pop out again.
56
Note: Never leave the bezel lock unlocked – the controller might consider it as a
sign of faulty drive.
9. Check for hard drive error(s) by looking at hard drive status LEDs. Make
sure the status LED lights up green (shown below).
